of low-hanging fruit, right? totally voluntary thing. i mean who could be opposed to this? the nra is opposed to this. the nra is wildly opposed to this. in tucson top, anniversary of the massacre there, the nra has come outraging against the tucson gun buyback program. they're trying to stop it. an nra board member is threatening that the nra will sue to stop tucson from destroying the guns that they handed over. the guns, regardless what their owners wanted, done with them, those guns must be sold to the highest bidder and put back into circulation. the nra says the state must not destroy the weapons that people handed over specifically so the weapons could be destroyed. instead, the nra says the state has to sell them, keep them in circulation, and thereby become a gun dealer itself. when your response to the political cliche of low-hanging fruit is something so cartoonishly insensitive, so cartoonishly villainous, you then bring upon us a second political cliche. you have jumped the shark. blocking voluntary efforts by people to get rid of their own guns because they want to vo

anything representing reasonable gun control they would lose the next primary, and the nra would see to it that they lost the next primary. >> jennifer: and there he was saying that nothing is going to get done. now you have given me a little bit of hope in john boehner being able to cobble together deals. do you agree with alan grayson? >> i don't think that the speaker wants anything to get done on gun control. and that's one that i think he really can stop. because they are so adamantly and ideologically opposed and if not that afraid that i don't see how we can -- can move that one, unless the senate -- i think two things that could happen. the senate could do a bill that had so many senator on it that then he would have to cobble together a -- a -- a majority made of the majority of the democrats, but i really think the only way we're going to get this done, i hate -- i hate to say this, because i don't think the burden should be on them but i think it has to come from newtown. i think this is going to fade especially when you get the multiple economic

. it was the first white house meeting for the nra in nearly two decades yesterday and this morning its president told matt lauer he was not pleased about how it went. >> we have a profound disagreement with this administration. first of all on what would make a difference. we don't think a ban on so-called assault weapons which hasn't worked in the past will work this time. >> one of the major pieces the vice president appears to be focused on is not the assault weapons ban but background checks. >> there's a surprising -- so far, a surprising recurrence of suggestions that we have universal background checks. not just close the gun show loophole but total universal background checks, including private sales. >> and the "washington post" reports today the white house is at least considering an nra proposal to fund police in schools, that's something now being pushed by democratic senator barbara boxer. i want to bring in "washington post" columnist ruth marcus and ryan grim. good to see you both. >> good morning. >> the nra said and i'm quoting here, we were disappointed with how little this mee

done by the vice president, incredible courage by the president. >> but the nra vows the fight of the century and republicans strongly condemn the president's ideas. senator blunt said, he's attempting to restrict the second amendment rights of law abiding americans. congressman scalise, any attempt by president obama to take away gun rights will meet strong opposition in congress. it was senator rand paul who went the farthest. >> our founding fathers were very concerned about having a separation of powers, they didn't want to let the president become a king. i'm afraid that president obama may have this king complex sort of developing and we're going to make sure that it doesn't happen. >> i want to bring in the political report for the washington post and editor of citizen jane politics and contribute for to the daily beast. let's start with the campaign push for this because we did see it work to help raise taxes on the rich. what does the president need to do this time around, do you think, patricia? >> i think he really needs to change the dynamic of what senators and con
, what did you learn? >> i think we learned that the nra is even crazier than you think they are. >> that is quite a lesson. what did you learn, donny deutsch? >> two things. my good friend, hoda kotb has a great new book out, and mike uses burt's bees to soften his hands. i have very, very dry -- >> no, no, no. what would you recommend for that? >> joe, stop this madness! >> they're very dry. would you recommend the same lotion you use. >> i would suggest you take a shower. >> nice shoes, though. >> do you actually wax your legs, donny? >> no, but they're very dry. mike and i have to talk about that. >> mike, what did you learn today? >> i learned so much i can't even tell you about it on here, joe. one of the things i did learn, what joe conason pointed out, is that the nra gives a whole new meaning to the word fringe. it is now at the top of the house become a fringe group. >> all right. well, mike, if it's way too early, what time is it? >> if it's way too early, it's time for "morning joe." but right now it's time for chuck todd and "the daily rundown." chuck? >> thank you,
the nra head had changed his mind on closing gun show loopholes. >> should we have mandatory background checks at gun shows for sales of weapons? >> if you're a dealer, that's already a law. >> that's not my question, please, mr. lapierre, i'm not trying to play games here, but if you could, it would help, just answer my question. >> senator, i do not believe the way the law is working now, unfortunately, that it does any good to extend the law to private sales between hobbyists and collectors. >> so, you do not support mandatory background checks at all in instances at gun shows? >> we do not, because the fact is, the law right now is a failure the way it's working. >> howard wilson, 9 in 10 americans support background checks. what planet is wayne lapierre on? >> well, he's clearly representing the gun lobby and the leadership of the gun lobby, which is many respects out of sync and out of membership of the nra. the polling we've done and the mayor have done shows members of the nra, rank and file members, gun owners, parents, support many of the reasonable checks that people are talk
of pressures especially when you consider the influence of the nra. >> okay, kelly o'donnell, thanks very much. >>> with us now is former pennsylvania congressman and three-star admiral joe sestak. very hard to get big, sweeping gun reform passed and there's very little that the president can do by way of executive authority that, you know, is big. for example, the assault weapons ban or banning any kind of weapons, banning high-capacity magazines, all of these things are congressional approval and what little he can do sort of strengthening the tracking devices, you know, tracking of weapons and trafficking of weapons, mental health checks, those are things that he could do without congress but obviously don't have the teeth that a lot of gun control advocates looking for. when he gets this proposal today and looks it over, is he hoping, do you think, to see some of these big, big ticket items in it and knows it's politically difficult or hoping to see sort of the lower end things and actually maybe put some of those in to implementation? >> you know, s.e. depends upon what the president want
of congressional opposition to the president, it was no sweat for nra president david keene to dismiss the president's initiatives as nothing but a grab bag of liberal feel-goodies. >> this is all sort of makes you feel good, but, in fact, it doesn't do much. >> he's confident saying that because the nra has spared no expense in quarterbacking all research on firearms and their impact on society. that is when they're not using their resources to target the president's daughters. in a new ad calling the president an elitist hypocrite for sending his daughter to a school with armed guards. an ad "the washington post" fact checker awarded a whopping four pinocchios. far from being elitist the relatively small force of unarmed security guards at sidwell is not unusual for a school of its size. moreover, the ad also suggests that obama rejects out of hand boosting security at schools when in fact his proposals include provisions that would provide funding for more school security. the nra, lawyers, guns, and money all in one powerful package. let's get right to our panel now. joining us is
association which has some gun control advocates wondering why since the nra has made it clear it has no interest in supporting legislation or executive action that might help keep guns out of the hands of dangerous people. "the washington post" would argue that the administration needs the nra because of the power, at least the perceived power it still has over members of congress and ultimately it going to be a vote to turn a bill into law. this is a friends close enemies closer strategy. >>> while the white house and congress work to craft some sort of legislation on a national level, new york governor andrew cuomo wants his state to be the first to enact new gun laws in the wake of the shooting at newtown. today, he plans to propose a new restrictive assault weapons ban which would strengthen the state law already in place by covering more guns and magazines. new york one of seven states already has some sort of assault weapons ban in place. he's also looking at proposing expanding the use of mental health records and background checks and requiring recertification. we're back wit
. feels like membership. >>> in the wake of newtown, the nra's wayne lapierre, the philosopher behind the only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun, focused his gimmlet eye on the entertainment industry. >> a thousand music videos, and you all know this, portray life as a joke, and they play murder, portray murder, as a way of life. and then they all have the nerve to call it entertainment. but is that what it really is? isn't fantasizing about killing people as a way to get your kicks really the filthiest form of pornography? >> last night, the gun lobby's chief wordsmith directed his criticism towards president obama and his inaugural message. we will discuss coming up next. my insurance rates are probably gonna double. but, dad, you've got... [ voice of dennis ] allstate. with accident forgiveness, they guarantee your rates won't go up just because of an accident. smart kid. [ voice of dennis ] indeed. are you in good hands? marie callender's gives you a way to make any day a special occasion. new mini cream pies for one. real whip cream and a cookie-crumb
regarding comments that the nra is gearing up to sell guns. and former secretary of state colin powell calls out republicans on race. >> there is also a dark vein of intolerance. >> dr. peterson joins me to discuss the republican response. good to have you with us tonight, folks, thank you for joining us. president obama took on the single greatest threat to the economy today, the republican party. the president used the conference in his first term to throw down the gauntlet, and after confusion, president obama set the record straight on the debt ceiling. >> now the other imposition is called the debt ceiling. something most americans had not heard of before two years ago. so i want to be clear about this. the debt ceiling is not a question of authorizing more spending. raising the debt ceiling does not authorize more spending. it simply allows the country to pay for spending that congress has already committed to. >> and of course republicans tried to trick americans into believing the debt ceiling was a blank check or magic credit card for the president to go spend whatever he wanted to
. >> and the debate over guns, one month after 26 children and adults were killed in newtown, and with the nra saying assault weapon ban would not pass congress, the president urged house members to, quote, examine their own conscience. >> the belief that we have to have stronger background checks, that we can do a much better job in terms of keeping these magazine clips with high capacity out of the hands of folks who shouldn't have them, an assault weapons ban that's meaningful, that those are things i continue to believe make sense. will all of them get through this congress? i don't know. >> and joining me live now, democratic congresswoman jackie spear of california, vice chair of the new gun violence task force. congresswoman, thank you so much for your time. since you are on this task force, i would like to start off with the president's comments on gun control legislation. he says later this week we'll hear more specifics, but as i mentioned, you had the nra saying that they're doubtful that any legislation at least involving banning assault weapons would make it through congress. you have su
. dan gross of the brady campaign is here with reaction to the president's comments that the nra is joining up fear to sell guns. >>> and former secretary of state colin powell calls out republicans on race. >> there is also a dark -- a dark vein of intolerance in some parts of the party. >> dr. james peterson janes me to discuss the republican response. >> good to have you with us tonight, folks. thanks for watching. president obama took on the single greatest threat to the global economy today, the republican party. the president used the final news conference of his first term to throw down the gauntlet. after years of deliberate confusion by republicans, president obama set the record straight on the debt ceiling. >> now, the other congressionally imposed deadline coming up is the so-called debt ceiling, something most americans hadn't even heard of before two years ago. so i want to be clear about this. the debt ceiling is not a question of authorizing more spending. raising the debt ceiling does not authorize more spending. it simply allows the country to pay for spending t
is coming straight from the nra play book which wayne lapierre actually called for in his address after sandy hook. >> if it's crazy to call for putting police in our schools to protect our children, then call me crazy. i'll tell you what the american people -- i think the american people think it's crazy not to do it. it's the one thing that would keep people safe. >> jennifer: actually looks like the american people do think he's crazy, or at least that his ideas are. there was a new ppp poll out there that finds that just 41% of the voters support the nra's proposal to arm teachers and it also found that the nra's support itself has eroded since lapierre's press conference. you might think that sounds pretty good, but that's down a full ten points since the week before his press conference. so maybe their struggle hold on our gun laws is loosening, and will continue to if leaders like dan malloy keep standing up to the gun lobby. >> freedom is not a handgun on the hip of every teacher and security should not mean a guard posted outside of every classroom. that
in the nbc news/"wall street journal" about the nra. 41% think of them positively, 34% negative. hollywood think 23% favorable, 46% negatively. we talked before about lance armstrong and pr. clearly the nra has got a pr challenge here. how do you think they've done so far since newtown in positioning themselves to be strong in this fight? >> why are you looking at me, mark? >> i'm just starting with you randomly. i went alphabetical. >> yeah, the nra has had good days and bad days in this. and actually, that depends how you look at it. even when the nra has a bad day and the media is calling them too aggressive, that's a good day for the nra. that usually ends up working in their favor in terms of membership. but, you know, i think the politics of maligning the nra is probably not a strategically good idea. that poll, for example, showing the favorability numbers, gun sales have skyrocketed, there's been an urgency to vilify the nra. for example, there's an ad out right now, one of a dozen, maligning a congressman named john barrow, a democrat in georgia. it's a democrat-on-democrat sort o
to choose. they can give in to the nra or they can protect america's children with reasonable reform. i'm joined tonight by katrina van den heuvel, editor and publisher of "the nation" magazine and jonathan alter, msnbc political analyst and columnist for bloomberg view. great to have both of you with us tonight. >> thank you. >> the pulse of the country has changed. katrina? >> the pulse has changed, but one thing we must do is end the nra's stranglehold on our politics. you know, i think it's important to remember, ed, that the nra has some 4 million members but there are 100 million gun owners in this country who support common sense legislation to reduce gun violence. the nra represents the gun industry more than it does its rank and file members who, according to a poll by republican frank luntz, support, nra members support common sense gun control legislation. i think we need to make this moment a moment where americans are angry, are outraged, make it into a movement. and we need americans to tell their legislators they're fed up, enough, we don't want to see guns out of control
that father. wayne lapierre of the nra will be going to the white house, sorry, to the senate judiciary committee this week. what do you think of the reaction of these lobbyists to a father whose child has been murdered? >> well, leaving aside the fact that the hecklers have no idea what they're talking about in the sense that the second amendment in no way restricts the outlawing of assault weapons, this has to be a new low in the debate. the idea that you would desecrate the memory of the victims of newtown and insult their families. this shows just i think how extreme and outrageous the nra and i assume the hecklers were nra moles, how they've become. you consider that in the context of the other absurd statements they have made about martin luther king and the civil rights movement going after the president's children. contrast that with what the president is doing which you mentioned in the setup piece, which is meeting with law enforcement, and if you take a look back at what happened in 1994, the principal strategy of those who wanted to pass the assault weapons ban was to get wi
school shootings, the nra has released a video. the same group that blamed the violent video games for the massacre in newtown. >>> and scott brown's political future, more observers saying he won't run for senate. and as i said, corey booker, who has announced his intention to run for senator in new jersey. the problem is he may have to run against fellow democrat and current senator franken lautenberg, as far as we can tell, they agree on just about everything. corey booker will answer steve kornacki's questions and will get tonight's last word. ♪ ♪ ♪ hi dad. many years from now, when the subaru is theirs... hey. you missed a spot. ...i'll look back on this day and laugh. love. it's what makes a subaru, a subaru. . >>> so newark mayor cory booker has a problem, he wants to run for senate. the problem is there is currently an incumbent democratic senator in the seat he wants to run for. he wants to respect that senator, he hopes that that senator, who happens to be 88 years old, will announce his retirement. that has not happened yet. so how does cory booker run and not run
tread very lightly. they'd better be very careful. they have wandered in and followed the nra whose made some horrible pr mistakes over the past month. republicans better be careful and think twice before they make their next move. >> right. >> remember, one of the reasons the numbers are so high on background checks is because most people believe that those background checks already happened. >> right. >> they don't think that's a change in the law. >> right. >> so you're on really weak ground when people haven't got a clue and they actually support something they think is law. so the education part of it is one aspect of it. but you've also got the sheer power, the emotion of the 9/11 families style approach where you've got the sandy hook families coming in, it's very hard to oppose -- it's not about the president. you've got -- it's not even about bloomberg's money that's going to go into the advertising. the emotional force of the sandy hook families is just like it was with the 9/11 families. and republicans have got to face up to that. frankly, democrats have to face up and grow a
when nra chief executive wayne lapierrre will testify to the judiciary committee that... >> john: no one's tried to blame law-abiding gun owners. i guess that means he believes he's allowed to own anthrax. lapierrre will be testifying during a hearing that will include mark kelly husband to gabrielle giffords who was shot by one of the deranged criminals who had all too easy access to a gun. joining me now is virginia tech shooting survivor, collin goddard. thank you so much for being here this evening. >> thanks for having me. >> john: is this a new low, do you think attacking the father of a child who was killed at sandy hook? >> there's really no place for anything like this in this discussion or debate. we can be disagreeable. we can disagree without being disagreeable, excuse me. saying things like that reflect poorly on gun owners and men as human beings. >> john: this might be the new m.o. for the hard core pro gun supporters. i'm not talking about the reasonable nra members the majority of whom support the majority of the president's proposed revisions in the laws. but at
